On 13th February 2020, Technological University Dublin is hosting a one-day seminar/conference entitled Using Games to Teach: Gamification and Game-Based Learning in Higher Education on its Blanchardstown campus. This free event is supported by the National Forum for Teaching and Learning, and the Informatics department at TU Dublin Blanchardstown.
In recent years, the use of games or game mechanics in teaching has gained recognition as a strategy that can significantly enhance student learning and engagement. The Games To Teach event is for researchers, practitioners, and anyone who is interested in the use of gamification and game-based-learning in higher education.
The programme includes a keynote by Professor Nicola Whitton (Head of Academic Engagement at Durham University), and workshops by Dr Alex Moseley (Head of Curriculum Enhancement, University of Leicester) and Dr Mark Glynn (Head of Teaching Enhancement Unit, Dublin City University).
The event also includes research and practitioner talks and poster presentations (contributions welcome!), and a complementary lunch and refreshments.
